Barrier Lake, Kananaskis

Barrier Lake, Kananaskis
Made by annkelliott
Four of us spent the day in this area on 18th July - Barrier Lake, Kananaskis. It was the second day of the University of Calgary's Open House, and my tiny group spent part of the day botanizing the forested area along this part of the shore of the lake. Though you can't tell in this photo, the woods were a mass of wildflower colour, including many orange Western Wood Lilies and red Paintbrush. Such a beautiful, peaceful place. Afterwards, two of us went on a butterfly walk, led by Steve, who was spending the summer working at the centre. This was when the rain decided to arrive! Barrier Lake is located approximately 80 km west of Calgary city limits. The Barrier Lake Visitor Information Centre is located 6 km (3.6 miles) south of the Trans-Canada Highway on Highway 40. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barrier_Lake

I know I've done this shot before, but it was so long ago and my gear has had a full overhaul since then, my style went along with it too. So here's an effort to see just how different it is. Four years ago, this was the shot I took (in the winter, mind you): Location: Barrier Lake, Kananaskis, Alberta, Canada.

Warning that a Grizzly and 2 cubs are in the area...... After about 5 minutes walking we are told to turn back, by conservation officers armed with big dogs and guns. The bears were close by. SO rather than go somewhere else, we did the hike in reverse!!

I was in my boat when I took this shot with my E-P2, 70-300 lens. Indeed, I have called this shot Epic Shake... just look at all those water droplets! I'm glad I wasn't nearby, as I'm pretty sure I would've had most of that on me.

A few weeks back I posted my Puddle of Mush photo which was taken from the top of Lush Ridge looking at Barrier Lake -- today I present Lusk Ridge as seen from Barrier Lake.

Thought I'd share this quick snapshot, a view from my little inflatable boat I've named Gray Ghost. T'was a beautiful day and I can't wait to do this again!

The ice is so smooth and hard my skate blades (which needed sharpening) hardly made a scratch in it. Barrier Lake, Kananaskis, Alberta

Too cold to swim in, but interesting enough to check out and cool off one's feet.
